Britain Shafted For French Farmers

Stitch-up? Now France excludes Britain from special talks on EU farm spending.
The French government has summoned a meeting of what it called the "G22" - senior ministers from 22 European states - in an attempt to influence a rethink of the EU's Common Agricultural Policy (CAP).

However, it has not invited Britain or other so-called "reform nations" - the Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark and Malta - all of which have argued for a full overhaul of EU farm subsidies.
Watching our incompetent ministers and officials being outwitted by our EU 'colleagues' in France and elsewhere is an ambarrassing reminder of why we should pull out of the whole damn show. Blair and Brown surrendered a big chunk of our rebate a couple of years back in exchange for 'promises' made by those colleagues to review the Common Agricultural Policy. In believing EU lies they showed themselves to be inept and spineless.

The French are not our colleagues or our allies. Neither are the Germans. The EU is a Franco-German stitch-up. The French in particular are keen to destroy London as Europe's financial capital, while all the Eurocrats are keen to see Britain reduced and dismantled. And they want our money as well.

We have our politicians to thank for this shameful situation.
